Just Shoot It Now on Reddit


Hey Just Shoot It Fam*,

Oren and I were looking for a better way for the Just Shoot It community to share links, news and their latest projects with each other.

So, we started our very own Subreddit.

Go check it out, share a few of your fav episodes, your projects, etc. Get in the mix and help grow this thing. And if you’re a real reddit-head, drop us a line. What are we doing wrong? What are we doing right? Do you wanna help mod? Matt (me) is a real dummy when it comes to Reddit, so…

Any other suggestions on how to grow the community?

Drop us a line on twitter. @mrmattenlow will read it, but may not respond. @SmiteyPieLeg wont read it, but if he somehow does, he’ll respond with like, way too much, in his co-host’s opinion. It’ll be a little overwhelming.

*Also, we should come up with a better way to refer to the community. Now taking suggestions.
